6:01pm
primary or secondary offense. officers are looking for any and all distractions. >> technology neighbors it on the market, consumers use it in the car and officers can show this is not a safe driving practice based on our experience, and we'll take the appropriate enforcement action. >> reporter: beatty says she is not mad at the officers, just worries california's laws aren't evolving as fast as the modernday technology in our lives. >> think that now it would be interesting to have more answers to have our laws more fresher because technology changes so fast and laws don't. and that's a big problem. >> reporter: what about gps? you're allowed to have it in the car but where you place it is important, either on the driver's left-hand side dashboard or the passengers's side. but you can't put it near that rear view mirror. live in berkeley, mark kelly,

guard. late today, it issued a slightly longer statement than the day before saying, it has an obligation to protect sensitive information and coast guard has been on to conduct routine inspections and ensure compliance with safety, security and environmental protection regulations but surprisingly they won't say whether the barge is in compliance. a cnet reporter wrote about the barge last friday and says secrecy is all part of it for google. >> in some ways the mystery is more important than what the reveal is. the longer this goes on, the more people are interested and, you know, the more google is keeping its mouth shut, the more the coast guard is keeping its mouth shut so it feeds the beast and the beast is the interest. >> reporter: meantime, the treasure island development authority complied with our request for a copy of the lease
6:04pm

measure to allow trappers to shoot firearms inside the city limits. the pigs would be trapped then quickly shot on sight. >> this is not a hunting permit that we're talking about. it's the ability for someone to discharge a firearm in conjunction with an animal being trapped. and so this is just a humane way of putting down an animal that is becoming a nuisance. >> reporter: the pigs have already caused about $10,000 in damage to the golf course. large swaths of the fairway are now under repair and receding. the country club is also installing a cyclone fence at a spot where the pigs have been coming in and on recent nights the members have been out all night on pig patrol to scare the animals away. but the club favors trapping and shooting as a more permanent solution. >> should the city council come up with a resolution, we would have to resubmit a permit to fish and wildlife and follow their instructions as far as the dispatching of the pigs. >> reporter: in this neighborhood, there isn't much
6:23pm
sympathy for the pigs. they are a non-native species and considered harmful to indigenous wildlife and their habitat. >> if you look at the destruction they have brought and the fact that they have come down into the domestic part of the neighborhood out of the hills, that when they run wild like this, that we need to do something to control them. >> reporter: the fencing and patrols may have been an impact. there haven't been sightings national past couple of days but either -- there haven't been sightings in the past couple of days, either. len ramirez. >> if the south bay gets a lot of rain, pigs would not be forced to come down to eat and drink. the man behind one of the most watched youtube videos has died. he was an oregon highway engineer. he used dynamite to blow up a beached whale. >> i'm confident that it will
